Bamboo is the symbolic “Gentleman of Summer.” To celebrate this amazing plant as we ring in the summer, we are partnering with Matt Lang, owner of Bamboo Botanicals, to showcase many beautiful, rare and unique bamboo plants throughout the Garden. Some of these display bamboos will be available for purchase during the showcase. There will also be many smaller sizes of rare bamboo for sale as well. Matt and staff will be on-hand to share expert knowledge about bamboo and to answer your gardening-related questions!

All are welcome – from landscapers and plant-enthusiasts to builders and the plain curious at heart. Regular Garden admissions apply.
